Denise, I just redid an installation of Fedora 11 beta in a VM on a Fedora 11 beta  physical serer.  Exactly the same behavior as I earlier report.  However, there's evidently an isssue with the logs.  /tmp has none of the log files that you request below.  I checked in my originally installed VM and in the one I just now installed and neither of them has the requested log files.  That might indicate another problem with the installer??

We're used to being blamed ;-)
Could you please attach /tmp/anaconda.log,  /tmp/storage.log, and 
/tmp/syslog to the bug report?
